NFL picksThe main story for the Browns vs Packers odds on Saturday night will be the Cleveland Browns starting quarterback position. As is the case for a number of other games this week, the sportsbook has set a line near three, but the Browns offer some value with a new coach and a hungry team. They’ll be more determined to win.




Browns vs Packers odds: Browns +3

  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Saturday, August 15 – 8:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Lambeau Field
  • PICK: Browns


Browns vs Packers odds maker breakdown: Offense

The Browns offense is somewhat lackluster, but what they do have is depth at the quarterback position, which is key in the preseason. Both Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson are fighting for the starting job, which means both will be gung-ho about impressing.

For the Packers, their offense is set in stone and their first preseason game will be all about knocking some rust off. While they have the better unit, they may not care to prove it much on Saturday night.

Betting Edge: Browns


Browns vs Packers odds maker breakdown: Defense

You can definitely bet that Eric Mangini’s defense will be going all out. Considering Mangini rarely gives his team a practice or play off, he’ll want to see them put forth a good effort on Saturday.

For the Packers, while their offense is set, the defense is transitioning to a 3-4 and will need plenty of repetitions to get it working. Even so, the Packers are a veteran unit on defense and don’t have a lot of depth. Don’t be surprised if their veterans don’t play very long.

Betting Edge: Browns


Browns vs Packers odds maker breakdown: Special Teams

The Browns get the edge on special teams as Josh Cribbs is a special return man and kicker Phil Dawson is stead. With the Packers, they’ll want to see kicker Mason Crosby pull up his socks. He’s struggled in camp recently.

Browns vs Packers betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

No NFL betting capper would tell you that the Browns are the more talented team in this equation, but what they do have on their side is hunger and preparation. Mangini works his teams hard and they are usually prepared to win. Look for them to put in more effort than the Packers and get the win.

STAN’S PICK: Browns +3
